Susan Elizabeth Hale, Children's Author and Singer/Songwriter
Susan Elizabeth Hale, Songkeeper
I’m an American transplant living in the hills of Malvern, England, which has been my home since 2011. For over 40 years, I have helped thousands of people find and free their natural voices through my work as a music therapist and sound healer. My latest book is a juvenile fiction novel, Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation, published by Our Street Books in October 2016. My non-fiction book, Sacred Space Sacred Sound: The Acoustic Mysteries of Holy Places, was published by Quest Books in 2007 and has been translated into Italian.
I have presented at many international conferences, including College of Sound Healing Conference, Theosophical Society of America Conference, Canadian Music Therapy Conference, and the Ancient Wisdom Conference in Italy. Several of my essays have been published in anthologies, most recently in The Best Angel Stories of 2014 by Guidepost Books. I am also a published poet and recently received third prize at the Winchester Writer’s Association Competition.
The most important thing the author wants readers to gain from her books:
Your unique voice can make a difference to our planet.
Why the author is an authority on the subject of her books:
Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation combines my knowledge of voice and vocal blocks with my passion for trees. I am a music therapist with over 38 years of experience in my field of music therapy, creative arts therapy, and sound healing. In 2010 I created a Facebook event, Earth Day-Sing for the Trees, which has become an annual global celebration. Since its inception, over 11,000 people in 43 countries have joined the love song for our trees every April 22.
Speaking Engagements and School Presentations:
I do school visits in the UK within a 50 miles radius of Great Malvern. I'm available for Skype school visits, interviews and presentations.
A one hour presentation includes author talk, slide show of ancient trees, singing, original songs, movement activities, and reading from Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation.
